Rocking the Festival of Fame

fof-top-img2.pngIn March 2016, three of the members of The Movement RSA, Mahlatsi Mokgonyana, Billy Langa and Mlindeli Zondi, took part in the Festival of Fame – a week long theatrical festival which is hosted by Assitej SA and the National School of Arts.

Mlindeli starred as Madiba in ‘Making Mandela’, which was recently nominated for several Naledi Awards. And all three gentlemen starred in ‘Sex and Me’, an educational play directed by Craig Morris and Clara Vaughan which is aimed at teenagers to address issues around sex and sexual identity.

Well done to all!

In January 2016, Founders of The Movement RSA, Mahlatsi Mokgonyana and Billy Langa, starred in ‘Egoli’ at the Market Theatre. This experimental show, directed by Phala Ookeditse Phala, pushed the theatrical boundaries and audiences out of their comfort zone. The Movement RSA Team are proud of Billy and Mahlatsi for their astonishing performances, and for being a part of this innovative work.

In March 2016, member of The Movement RSA, Binnie Christie, was invited to stage a show for Joburg Theatre as a part of the Youth Development Programme. Binnie wrote and directed ‘You Take My Breath Away’, which was devised with the cast members Joe Young and Neo Sibiya. The quirky romantic comedy was warmly received by audiences, and invited back to the Space.com in 2017. Congratulation to Binnie and the cast on this successful show!
